If you always news groups must take to see if there is something you're interested, this is a time consuming activity. With FTD3 this is an easy job. FTD (Fills Threads Database) is a program belonging to a community. The program allows people to let each other know what and where they are Usenet posts.
It is with this program you can post on each other to react and fills, Par2 files and re-posts to the poster asking.
It is a program that you can find many posts and direct contact with the poster can have.
You can become a member of this community. The problem is that membership is limited to the density of servers limit. It is possible that there are no more free places. The dormant accounts are regularly cleaned up so there is room. If it fails, try it every day, this could easily take a couple of weeks but it is certainly worthwhile.

In binaries newsgroups, each file is split into a number of particles that are called articles. After downloading these articles to your news reader (eg Grabit) be merged into the original file.
Each of these articles have a unique number, "Message ID". An NZB file is collection of the Message ID, which merged in a text file with the extension. "nzb". If an NZB file you can import it into your news reader and the original file downloaded.
